The Sunrisers made an impressive start to their campaign, coasting to a 9 wicket victory away to the Rajasthan Royals on Monday. They restricted the Royals to a total of 125/9 with an excellent all round bowling performance. Of the 5 bowlers used nobody went for more than 7.50 per over and Siddarth Kaul (2/17) and Shakib Al Hasan (2/23) had the most success. In the chase Sunrisers lost Saha early but Dhawan (77) and new skipper Williamson (36) saw them home in 15.5 overs for a very comfortable win.
Mumbai opened their tournament at home to Chennai Super Kings in Match 1. They went off as favourites and healthy contributions in the 40’s from Krishan, Yadav and Krunal Pandya helped them post 165/4 batting first. CSK looked in trouble at 84/6 but Dwayne Bravo caught fire and in a nail biting finish Mumbai’s total was overhauled with 1 ball to spare and 1 wicket in tact. Hardik Pandya (3/24) and Mayank Markande (3/23) were the pick of the Mumbai bowlers.
Pat Cummins has been ruled out of the tournament for Mumbai

This looks a tough game to call but with a healthy respect for what looks like 2 of strongest bowling units in the tournament a chance is taken that no batsman on either side will reach 69 runs or more.
